Pop Physique

Established in California, the Mount Vernon studio, casually known as “Butt School," is one of only two Pop Physique outposts on the East Coast. Though Baltimore may not have the climate that necessitates a year-round bikini body, this twist on a traditional barre class will leave you with shaking muscles and a seriously toned booty.


InSync Cycle

For the cardio junkie in need of a change, hop on an indoor bike at Hunt Valley's InSync Cycle for a low impact yet high intensity workout. Each class focuses on interval training coordinated to fast-paced tunes to keep your energy up along with your heart rate.
